ASWSU Global is Here for You

The ASWSUG Executive Board recognizes the unique challenges students may face when learning from a distance. As both students and leaders, our goal is to support all students pursuing their educational goals, no matter where in the world they may be.

Qualification for reimbursements requires the following:

  • Applying student must be a Global Campus Services & Activities (S&A) fee payer. Students enrolled in Electric Power Engineering Online Program (PSM), OMBA, and EMBA programs do not pay GC S&A fees and are not eligible (reimbursements are made possible through S&A fees).
  • Provide current proof of enrollment in a total of six or more credits during the semester the reimbursement is requested for. A screen capture of your myWSU course schedule showing credit enrollment is sufficient.
  • Receipts for Spring term must be dated between January 11 and May 15, 2021.

Apply for Reimbursements

Reimbursement applications for Spring are open until May 15, 2021.

This is a final deadline, as ASWSU Global will be unable to process reimbursements for the spring semester after this date. To streamline the process and allow ample time to respond to questions that may arise, we recommend entering reimbursements as soon as the purchase has been made.

Please review available reimbursements for additional details.

Important Update: Multiple types of reimbursements may now be requested on one form. For example, if you have a childcare, honor society, and grocery reimbursement request, you can submit them all at the same time on one form.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are the resources available to students determined?

The Student Resources Committee holds monthly meetings to discuss ways we can help students overcome challenges and successfully complete their studies. Assistance to students may include informational resources, scholarships, and/or financial reimbursements.

As a member of Global Campus, you can help us fulfill this mission by providing your time, ideas, and feedback during monthly meetings held on the final Tuesday of every month at 4 p.m. (PST). As a bonus, this is an excellent way to earn leadership experience while networking with your peers! Participation may be as much or little as you desire, and you will make a positive impact in your community. 

ASWSUG welcomes all participation – this is an open opportunity for us to listen to you. Every student experience is different, and the more voices involved, the better. If you cannot attend the scheduled meeting hours, please consider contacting the Director of Resources (global.resources@wsu.edu) with your thoughts, or to schedule a one-on-one call.
